Most of the vehicles in our sales were purchased new and driven by Government employees for official purposes. They are sold when they reach replacement age and/or mileage. Our vehicles are one of the best buys in the marketplace today because of good maintenance, relatively low age and mileage, and desired features like automatic transmission, air conditioning, power steering, and power brakes. And they don't look like institutional vehicles, as the Government buys attractive body styles in a variety of colors.

Auctions and sales to dispose of postal equipment are conducted locally to foster community involvement and reduce handling and transportation costs. These sales are announced in local newspapers and by notices posted on lobby bulletin boards at the post offices where the sales will be held. The Purchasing Service Centers in each of our regions maintain lists of those interested in making purchases within their geographic areas. To have your name added to the list for an area, please write to the Manager of the appropriate Purchasing Service Center listed below:
